Vinayaka Chavithi Subhakanshalu | Ganesh Chaturthi Greetings | Festival Dishes for Ganesh Chaturthi

"Vinayaka Chaturthi Subhakanshalu to all my readers!"

This year with kids grown up, we had fun with them asking us every other moment when God Ganesh is going to come home. With their father telling them that they should get dressed up soon to welcome the God, they were ready in no time. 

So it was with difficulty that we dodged them to leave for the market. I went along with hubby dear to the market to get the Ganesh Idol. I made sure I took the camera to click few market pictures. Konda was upset that she wasn't called. But with two Idols we knew we can't manage her too. We got for Amma also.

Our Idol this year decorated with flowers and offered with fruits, his favorite sugar cane, Fresh Bajra

Please check out our previous years celebrations:

Neivedyam for Lord Ganesha! ~ From Left Front to Right Poli, Purnam Kudalu, Pidi Kolukattai (Salt), Sundal, Sesame Laddos, Puffed Rice with Jaggary & Fried Gram.



This is what Amma made, Konda and I helped her in making these Kudumulu, Nugul untallu ~Sesame Laddoo, Sweet Pidi Kolukattai

Hi Srivalli,

Nice pics there. I loved hte pics of the market scene. When I was in Chennai, we lived in T.Nagar so Pondy Bazzar used to be sooo crowded just before the festival. I remember it would have also rained so it would be a supreme effort to shop!!!
